“Last season, when Bode Merrill and cinematographer Jon Ray set out to collaborate on a movie, it was everyone’s best guess that the resulting film would be nothing short of really, really good. Well, after traversing the better part of the winter-plagued world during the 2015-16 season, the duo exceeded the already high expectations with a movie that seamlessly blended Bode’s larger-than-life riding abilities and earnest sense of humor with the talents of four ardent up and comers. The location-based narrative of Reckless Abandon was capped off with an ending segment featuring Bode himself and, honestly, if that was the video above, that would be well-worthy of your repeated viewing. But, true to form for the video that Jon and Bode created, the above full part is an extended cut, re-edited with even more of Bode’s mental footage. With that, we’ll stop typing so you can start watching.” – Snowboarder Magazine
